Red Bull launched their brand new 2013 competitor today in a rather muted event at Milton Keynes. The car was revealed with Sebastian Vettel and Mark Webber on hand to remove the covers, and it was a new livery with increased purple alongside the blue, and a bigger sticker presence for title sponsors Infiniti.
Media present in Milton Keynes were banned from taking photographs, but official pictures of the car were released showing a stepped nose without the letterbox slot they had last season.
Chief designer Adrian Newey explained the evolution on the car: “We’ve tidied up some bits we thought could be improved upon, but as is usual these days, this is a car in transition. There’ll be one or two new parts appearing by the first race.”
And Team Principal Christian Horner is confident the team can shoot for another title, saying: “This is the fifth year the driver pairing has been together. We’ve got continuity throughout the technical teams and in all the key areas. I think that’s proof that there’s a fierce determination to keep both of those trophies in the cabinet for another year.”
